It’s January but I’m already looking ahead to Spring with this bright and feminine transitional look! It’s been quite hectic with work but when I get a chance to dress up or wear heels, you will usually find me in something feminine & classic. I love how fun and easy-to-wear this bright pink bell sleeve dress is and I’m wearing my favorite new pink bow shoes I got over Christmas! You guys know me – I love me a good bow shoe!

I’ll be honest – after we started our IVF journey, I haven’t been particularly excited to dress up, which is probably why you haven’t seen much content from me in the past few weeks! I apologize for the lack of content lately as we’ve been focused on our (1) IVF and (2) new boutique and our (3) home remodel. Thank you again for all the support – it’s helped us get through this stressful time. I’m finally feeling back to myself again and after all side effects of the injections (i.e. bloating). Hurray – I can fit into my jeans again! This beautiful red dress from Express (which is currently 50% off) has me in better spirits and definitely putting me in the holiday mood! This is a great dress you can not only wear to a holiday party but also New Year’s, Valentine’s and pretty much anytime you need to feel extra good about yourself! The fit is amazing and has a sexy slit for some extra va-voom ;).

I have a soft spot for leopard and I LOVE that it’s trending this season! I wear my casual loafers often and I was so excited when I found these gorgeous leopard booties on They have the cutest kitten heels and are not only stylish but super comfy. You can wear these booties with high-waisted jeans and jazz up the whole look without doing too much. In this post, I paired the booties with this easy-to-wear satin wrap dress in my favorite color of the season again – burgundy. I thought the mix of satin and leopard would be a little unexpected and fun. Did I mention – I’m seriously obsessed with these booties?!

I love wearing warmer tones in the Fall and one of my favorite colors to wear right now is burgundy. This gorgeous burgundy and UNDER $100 lace midi dress from Nordstrom is perfect for a Fall wedding or a holiday party. I love how the underlay is just short enough and the lace extends to a true midi length. The dress comes in other beautiful colors too and the size XS fits true to size for me.

It’s quite hot here in SoCal right now but for chilly nights, I’d throw a faux fur caplet or fitted leather jacket to complete the look. I can’t wait til the temperature drops here in SoCal so we can really enjoy Fall fashion!

Fall is in full swing and temperatures are even starting to drop slightly here in SoCal. Two of my favorite Fall trends happening right now are polka dots and sock booties. My husband (aka photographer) actually told me “are you wearing socks with your shoes?” and I laughed and replied “they are actually sock booties!” I guess I should be happy he noticed how they are suppose to look? I found this pair from Jeffrey Campbell surprisingly comfortable thanks to the neoprene material. I admit I tried to rock the white leather booties that are super trendy right now but they just weren’t very comfortable to me, especially compared to the black neoprene ones. And I’m really scared of getting the white ones dirty lol. Anyway, I’m so happy Nordstrom has so many options I can try and in so many different price points. And I’m even happier they offer trend dresses like this polka dot dress in size XS for petite gals like me :).

It’s still pretty hot in Southern California and I’m holding on to every last bit of summer! I’ve been super into ruffles and stripes lately so when I curated this ruffle stripe dress for Morning Lavender, I knew I had to snag one for myself :). By the way, this dress is suppose to be off the shoulder but I made it strapless as I felt it fitted my petite frame better.

It’s my birthday and I’ll wear green if I want to! :). I usually don’t wear a lot of green but whenever I do, I always wonder why I don’t wear more of the gorgeous color. I just adore all of the pretty lace dresses from ASOS and instantly fell in love with this off the shoulder lace midi dress in the prettiest shade of emerald green. I love the midi lengths ASOS carries – you might remember me in this pink lace midi dress in this blog post HERE. They have so many gorgeous styles in this type of lace – check out the end of my blog post for some of my favorites!

Fashion, Summer


Just wanted to start off by saying THANK YOU to everyone who has wished me well this past few weeks. I felt a bit overwhelmed most of June from being sick, to our big home move (and remodel) and tackling all of these incredibly exciting (but stressful) projects happening for work. I decided to take a brief break from blogging as I regathered myself emotionally. I feel so much better after a much needed break and extra support from family and friends during this stressful period. I didn’t want to stay away for too long as there are just so many cute summer clothes and amazing sales that are about to happen! So I’m back – recharged, re-energized and ready with a closetful of goodies to show you ;). I will also be back with some more Bosslady Lessons so stay tuned for that as well!

Now that July is here and summer is in full swing, I’m posting some great summer wedding guest outfits. I wore this super cute and super comfy ruffle maxi jumpsuit to a wedding a few months ago and the shorts underneath definitely made getting my groove on a whole lot easier ;). I just love the ruffle detail on this jumpsuit and how nicely the whole thing flows. Keep in mind the top part is sheer so make sure you get one of these backless sticky bras (one of my undergarment must haves).

Fashion, Spring


Today I’m sharing this flirty white lace dress that’s as cute from the back as it is from the front! I love lace dresses that have that extra special detail to them and this one wins with the cutest ruffles. I’ve been asked a lot about my experience with shopping at Chicwish and I must say although it takes a while to get your merchandise (~ 2-3 weeks), the quality is surprisingly good for the affordability. This dress is only $56! I would order from them if you aren’t in a rush to get your items but do want something trendy and cute. And you can see where I like to splurge – my handbags :). I’m wearing my favorite Chanel Vanity Bag – it was such a journey to get this bag (I called a billion Chanel stores domestic and international before getting it through the personal shopping department at Saks Fifth Avenue) and I’m clearly obsessed with it.

It looks like the off the shoulder trend isn’t going anywhere and I’m not complaining one bit! I adore off the shoulder styles as they are very flattering for my neckline and I love finding them a variety of styles and prints. This fitted, bardot style dress from ASOS has a gorgeous Spring print and its petite sizing makes the fit perfect for my frame. I love pairing a beautiful print like this with simple, feminine accessories!
